Obituary for Janet Vivian Lofgren

Janet Vivian Lofgren, age 81, was called home to her Lord on July 16, 2020. She was born May 1, 1939 in Avon Lake, Ohio, daughter to Harry Soderquist and Eban Ranghild “Vivian” (Nelson) Drury. She was later adopted and raised by Edward Drury and raised her along with her mother.

Janet graduated from Avon Lake High School in 1957 and attended Bethel College where she graduated with a teaching degree in Elementary education. This is where she met Harvey Lofgren and they were married July 30, 1960. She taught school in Michigan until she was blessed to become a mother. She left teaching to raise her four children and was a loving and dedicated mother. Her home was warm and inviting where she created an environment of love and acceptance that continued throughout her entire life.

She was a long time member of the Grand Ledge Baptist Church; she loved music; directed the choir; played the trumpet, founding member of the Evening Edition Bible study and support group, and was a leader at The Mom’s and More program at the church where she was able to portray the love she had for her Lord and Savior while touching many young women’s lives.

She is survived by her children: daughters, Darlene Mayhak and Marla Lofgren, her sons, Nathan and Neal; 7 grandchildren; and brother, Edward (Paula) Drury. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 59 years, Harvey Lofgren; brothers, William and Timothy Drury; sister, Nancy (Drury) Koltovich.

Out of respect and concern for public health and safety, a celebration of life will be held on her birthday, May 1, 2021 at the Grand Ledge Baptist Church. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given to Grand Ledge Baptist Church Benevolence Fund in memory of Janet Lofgren. The family is being served by the Peters & Murray Funeral Home, Grand Ledge. Online condolences may be shared at
